    Hate to see this. Ehlo always seemed like a good guy.

    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say former NBA player and Eastern Washington University coach Craig Ehlo has been arrested in Spokane, Wash., in a domestic violence case.
    The (Spokane) Spokesman-Review reports Ehlo was booked into jail Thursday morning on suspicion of first-degree reckless burning, domestic violence. The charge is a felony.
    No additional details on the case were released.
    The 51-year-old recently coached at Eastern Washington University and resigned July 11.
    Ehlo played at Washington State University from 1981 to 1983 and was drafted into the NBA by the Houston Rockets. He played for 14 seasons with the Rockets, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Atlanta Hawks and Seattle SuperSonics. For his career, Ehlo averaged 8.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 873 games.
    He was most known for his seven seasons with the Cavs, whom he started for and averaged 9.9 points a game. He also was the defender on one of Michael Jordan's most famous shots, in the 1989 NBA playoffs.
    Ehlo also worked as a television analyst for the Sonics and Gonzaga.

    Motey is lucky that this wasn't Jeremy Lin. Totally dodged a bullet.

    This is the beginning of the "Jordan Curse." Byron Russell is next.

    What?? So if he gets jail time is Craig not allowed to start at the beginning of the season? Should we just waive him now or keep him on our Game Action & roster Moves? Thoughts?

    So he was burning clothes outside his house after arguing with his wife. Ehlo must have some sort of substance problem or acute anger management issues.

    Wow, this is really strange. Sounds like he may be dealing with some mental issues. Ehlo was one player the Rockets let get away.
